We booked a one night stay on our drive down North Island. Nice welcome from Simon on arrival and very helpful with information on the local area. Our room was very spacious on the first floor at the rear of the complex with a nice covered balcony looking out across towards the lake. The room was nicely equipped, spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed.
The motel is just off the lakefront along which you can walk to the main shops and restaurants in about 20 mins. We were advised of an electronic system controlling the kerbside parking time limits so we decided to walk to town as the weather was OK to do so. If the weather is wet then I suggest you would need to drive to town in view of the distance and the openness along the lakefront, if so check out the parking restrictions.
When we looked at the external photos of the acommodation before we booked we were apprehensive as it looks as though it could be a bit tired and as you drive up you are doubtful but once you get in any doubts are soon quashed.
Could not fault the acommodation or the service and would definitely recommend.
